7 Reasons Why SPC Software Benefits Production


Is implementing an online, real-time SPC software worth the effort? The short answer is…yes. But you have to make sure you have the right software. How well these are addressed really comes down to the software provider. One must consider issues like implementation time and just how much training is it going to take to use the software. Thought, preparation, and a healthy dose of foresight have to be part of the consideration process when it comes to legitimizing and choosing a solution.  Here are some tips on why SPC software benefits production to get you moving in the right directionPicture of operator using Synergy SPC Software to ensure process is in control.:

1. Rapid Setup
“The reason we selected SynergySPC was because file creation literally takes minutes,” said Chris Gauthier of Multicircuits.

2. Easy to Train
“It’s a very good teaching tool to be able to explain with visuals to describe where the process is running at and where we want to be. Within seconds, we can call up a part number on a machine and know what’s going on with that machine or the current production run,” commented Douglas Winfrey of United Gear and Assembly. Read more

Save on Productivity Using SPC Software

In her April 2012 article titled, “Deliver Higher Productivity with Smarter Workforce Practices”, Patricia Panchak, Editor-in-Chief of Industry Week states that:

“With the effective cost of labor evening out between China and the U.S., manufacturers must find other ways to improve productivity and reduce costs. One way: leverage production personnel.”

In addition to reducing scrap, reducing rework, SPC software can also increase productivity.

Using SPC software can save operator time. “From first inspection to final inspection, the Synergy 2000™ has helped us because operators can easily enter the information and if there is a problem, they can see that on the chart. We have seen the part inspection time reduce by 50 percent using Synergy,” said Bob Batsche, Quality Manager for Carlisle & Finch Co.

Using SPC software also increases the productivity of quality personnel as well.” As Quality Manager, what used to take a day’s worth of work to determine our Cpk’s and our Ppk’s is now just a click of a mouse. Now I have a tool that enables me to analyze, report, and explain in an efficient manner the current state of our processes. I have the data to show where we can improve our processes,” said Quality Assurance Manager for Cumberland Plastics Solutions.
